General JB question on how it will effect 4.0
OK, I am pretty new to the JB community since Spirit on my 3gs but wish I had done it sooner and on my 3g prior to that too and have really come to depend upon it. My question is how soon does everyone expect it to be until Spirit has a JB for 4.0 and then more importantly how soon before the cydia apps are able to run on 4.0. I saw on another site that alot of the cydia apps (SBSetting, Miwi, lockscreen, etc.) are not compatible with 4.0. Plus I can only assume that things like backgrounder and proswitcher and categories will be obselete with the new functionality in 4.0. So my question is how does this work for the JB developers and what about paid apps? Are they already working on it, etc. Just curious since I am debating whether I should get the new phone and then live without them until they are ready or keep using my 3gs and wait until the JBs are good. tough decisions.

Spirit is userland so it'll take a little bit for it to be upgraded. Eventually it will probably work. Tethered just means everytime you turn off your iphone you have to plug it back into the computer to turn it back on and work.

GeoHot usually releases on the PC, then later on the Mac.
In the past, GeoHots jailbreaks have been "easier" to use ( 1 button jailbreak so to speak ).
Right now we don't know if NEW devices will be tethered or not, but we are pretty certain that existing devices will not be tethered with the new jailbreak ( at least Geohot claims to have a fix to remove the need to have a tethered jailbreak ).

All the iOS 4 betas and even the GM have been jailbroken so it'll just take the dev team a couple days to double-check to make sure the jailbreak still works with the offical version and then package it up into a new pwnage tool for us. Less than a week i'm sure.

4.0 GM is already jb by the dev-team so it will be hours I think, not days after the official iOS4 release. But I agree with francolasalsa, I'm staying put till my jb apps are 4.0 compatible. Can't live without lockinfo, backgrounder and Quikreply.
